magazine covers Page 1
The vibe we were getting from Katy Perry’s Elle cover was an awesomely grunge-glam, fierce high fashion MySpace bedroom selfie, which is convoluted enough. But the vibe they were going for is even more of a mash-up.
While we’re still at least a week away from Christmas in August, otherwise known as the act of annexing our local magazine shop and buying the heavy and copious September issues, the covers are being unveiled on the web to whet our appetite. Many of the big reads have yet to make their debut, but we’re already seeing some extraordinary stuff.
In all our excitement over who’s appearing on the cover of which September issues, we totally forgot about out one major category: The men’s mags. And those often turn out to the be the most interesting, because you can’t take off all your underwear and get vagazzled to the nines under the eye of Anna Wintour.
On Friday Katy Perry admitted to Jay Leno that she deprived herself of coffee and alcohol for three whole months in preparation for her July Vogue cover. Hence why we don’t blame her for not looking very happy to front Elle UK’s September issue, which was just released this morning.
We have got to give LOVE Magazine some serious props for realizing something we should have fathomed long ago, Cara Delevingne is Shirley Temple. Okay, not exactly, but as soon as we saw the supermodel on their 5th anniversary cover with corkscrewl curls, Minnie Mouse ears, #nomakeup (as she hastagged herself), and making one of her signature quirky faces, we immediately though of Temple and the ’30s era films we grew up watching at our Grandma’s house. Seriously, couldn’t you just see Cara getting real jazzed about finding animal crackers in her soup? We can see the Instagram, already.
When Amanda Seyfried isn’t rapping dressed as a frog, she is a very sexual being, and she’ll be the first to tell you.
While a Prince concert is proof enough of the legend’s vitality, V Magazine’s August cover is yet another reminder that in his infamous vault that holds a wealth of unreleased work, Prince is keeping the ancient secrets of the fountain of youth.
Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Upton, oh my!
This morning our office was bursting with excitement over the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down DOMA. Between this groundbreaking step towards equality, and the fact that it’s Gay Pride Week, we’re literally seeing rainbows and are tempted to give our hair a polychromatic makeover. But before we commit, here are 15 of our favorite techno-(hair)colored magazine covers and editorials:
We have yet to see someone parading down Prince Street with the much buzzed-about Chanel hula hoop bag, but the infamous design has landed its second magazine cover, slung over the shoulder of Isabel Scholten on the summer issue of ELLE Netherlands.
We kind of love that Katy Perry, the girl who: kissed a girl and liked it, dyed her hair Smurf blue, wore a Manish Arora Circus Carousel Dress, and brought us the frosted cupcake bra, has received the ultimate nod of approval from the ever-discerning Anna Wintour.
A rainy day has become all the more grim with the news that one of our favorite stylists, Annabel Tollman, has passed away at age 36. In honor of Tollman, we’ve dug into the archives and found our 10 favorite covers and editorials that have that distinct Annabel touch.
Amy Adams has always had that girl-next-door charm. So much so that when we got a first glance at Interview magazine’s July cover, we hardly recognized her with that vampy dark pout, shellacked hair, and sleepy stare. She appears alongside her Superman co-star, the adonis-like Henry Cavill, who is equally as brooding and looks nothing like the sweet Peter Parker we’d expect. The two make quite a pair in the nuanced black-and-white photographs; if each wasn’t already spoken for, we’d be convinced they were embroiled in a steamy off-screen romance.
It’s official: Kate Upton is Vogue‘s “American Dream Girl”, having landed the cover of the June issue after many months of speculation and rumor rebuttal from all sides. The news is remarkable not only because of Upton’s “Cat Daddy” origins, but because the glossy has seen so few models on its cover in the past decade that this puts the Sports Illustrated star in a very rarefied group indeed.
Miley Cyrus fronts V’s “Drawn to Fashion Issue” with a fancy tri-fold cover. Unfortunately, we literally have no idea what’s going on in any of them.
We’ve never really paid much attention to Kate Moss’ misaligned eyes (probably because she and her photog friends do a great job at hiding that particular quirk). Well, the eyes are on full display on her latest Vogue UK cover.
We didn’t really like Carey Mulligan’s May Vogue cover, but we’re totally in love with her June cover for Harper’s Bazaar UK. What do you think?
Portia De Rossi covers Out magazine’s Power Issue, but all we see is her partner Ellen DeGeneres. It may just be coincidence, but it sure is adorable.
In a mere three days, Peggy Olson, Betty
Draper Francis, Joan Harris, and the new Mrs. Draper will be back on the small screen for a brand new season of Mad Men. Suffice it to say we are VERY excited. Magazine editors have also fallen hard for the show’s leading ladies and January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and, as of last season, Jessica Paré have been newsstand fixtures ever since the show hit the airwaves. In the spirit of nostalgia, we’re taking a look back at their best shoots, and in the spirit of competition (of which there’s certainly no shortage on the show), we want to know whose you like best.
Hayden Panettiere fronts the May issue of Glamour, and while she looks every bit the summer goddess in yellow Dolce & Gabbana on the cover, the spread has us scratching our heads.
